Re: questions about ultrasound results
No, you don't see a general surgeon for thyroid issues, instead you can see an ENT--ontorongologist, one that removes many thyroids a week---and/or, you can see an endocrinologist. I don't think you are at the stage of needing a surgeon yet. The endo might be a better route (mine has an ultrasound machine in his office which is convenient).
That is too small of a nodule to even get a needle biopsy on, so you can either follow it over time for growth and changes with ultrasounds every year, (your thyroid as well because it is enlarged), or an endo can do this, and perhaps you can try to go on thyroid meds to see if it helps shrink the enlarged thyroid you have.
